Celtic’s trophy winning celebration was slightly damped by going down to a 1-0 loss to Aberdeen at Celtic Park after a poor performance.

Brendan Rodgers brought back his first-players for the game, after playing a shadow squad against Kilmarnock in midweek, with the likes of Tom Rogic, Kieran Tierney and Moussa Dembele all starting.

The first-half had very few chances, with only one for each side, Greg Stewart’s free-kick hitting the bar for the Dons and Moussa Dembele having a shot saved by Joe Lewis.

Aside from that the Hoops struggled to break down a determined Dons defence and the first-half ended goalless.

The Dons dominated the start of the second-half and after Stewart curled an effort round the post Andrew Considine gave the Pittodrie side the lead.

Leigh Griffiths came close on a few occasions to getting the equalising goal for the Bhoys with a header which hit the post but the Hoops didn’t do enough on the day to get the three points and overall Aberdeen deserved the three points.
